Meet Me in the Parking Lot -- Alexandra Leggat's stylish successor to her acclaimed collection of short fiction Pull Gently, Tear Here (Insomniac, 2001) -- is a foray into the rocky terrain of the troubled mind. In more than fulfilling the promise of her first collection, Leggat ups the ante to explore all aspects of the ambulatory: the vehicle that brings us into the world, the vehicle we get around in while here, and the vehicle that often loses control and crashes. Here, characters externalize their internal conflicts, and the stories share the common themes of mothers, cars and the unpredictable nature of the psyche.
